Sometimes it is the little things that can make a home feel styled. And with flu season upon us, this a timely project to give the humble tissue box a makeover. It is so easy to make and adds little sophistication to your interior.

To make a DIY leather tissue box holder, you will need:

  • Box of tissues
  • Piece of leather
  • Super glue
  • Heavy duty scissors
  • Ruler


Approximate time: 1 hour

Difficulty: Easy

The project step by step

Step #1 – Trace a template on the back of your leather using your box of tissues as the guide. Flip the box over to each side and draw around it. Remember to also make angled cut-outs on the corners.

Step #2 – Using heavy-duty scissors cut out the template

Step #3 – Make a thin long opening in the centre of the main panel to be able to access the tissues later on.

Step #4 – Start folding up your edges using super glue to make a box shape. Do this on both sides.

Step #5 – Place your leather cover over the tissue box. All finished!

Simply pull the tissues through and you have got the perfect finishing touch for your space!
